The Ionian Blueprint for Executive Success

The right business, the right systems, the right leaders

Enviable success, followed by unenviable predicaments, companies like Kodak, Nokia, Blockbuster, Blackberry… each of these companies, and so many more, fell off the pace, lost their way and were engulfed by change.

To keep your edge, stay ahead of the pack and move faster than your competitors – not to mention the ability to zig when competitors zag – you need a model; a formula that can help leaders and organisations navigate an ambiguous world. The Ionian Blueprint for Executive Success is that model.

Many leaders are struggling to cope, or even just find their way, through this time of rampant volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity – good leaders cope because they understand that:

  1. They need to have the right business model, products or services the market wants
  2. They need the right organisational structure to deliver on that model
  3. They need the right leaders to make it happen; to implement things

The Ionian Blueprint of Executive Success can help you deliver on the above three critical pillars:


Clear your thinking and develop the right mindset. Eliminate assumptions. Your teams and leaders will know exactly what’s expected of them.


Cultivate executive presence. Connect with others, one-on-one, one-to-many and from the stage. Be confident and instil confidence in others.


Surround yourself with the right people. Attract, develop and maintain the best people and engender high performance team behaviours. Create a culture of success.


Like the pillars that have supported the Parthenon on the Athenian Acropolis in Greece since 438 BC, what solid foundation will help you grow, build a lasting legacy and create a sustainable future as solid as the Parthenon?


Is your strategy the right one for a fast-moving market where change and disruption are as certain as death and taxes? What does this strategy mean to you, your team and the business? Take your strategy and bring it to life for stakeholders and the organisation.


Publishing magnate Felix Denis once said that ideas without execution are nothing. Not many people execute well. We’ll work with you at an executive planning level to ensure delivery of what has been agreed. Expect accountability, ownership and an eye for detail.


Develop, nurture, build. As leaders, it is our responsibility to develop ourselves, and then equip other leaders to lead us into the future.
